Step 1

Heat reserved bacon drippings in a large soup pot; sauté onion and celery over medium heat until tender. Add remaining ingredients except half-and-half; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 45 minutes, until peas are very tender. Discard bay leaf. Fill a blender 3/4 full with soup; blend to purée. Return to soup pot; stir in half-and-half.
